minority leader mitch mcconnell say, look, we know we're on the edge of the fiscal cliff right now but that doesn't mean we're just going to sign off on anything. republicans are kind of holding their ground at this point and i believe that means there is a deal this weekend, if something happens in the white house today, it will require democrats to either change their stance on taxes and also include a promise of cuts and entitlement reform. otherwise, we really are looking at january 1 and the fiscal cliff happening. in which case a resolution won't happen until the new congress comes into session on january 3rd. gregg: that's right. we've been following not only the events on the floor but people stepping before microphones. here is representative jim moran. >> there are going to be voting sunday night and then probably watching the skins-cowboys fame in the cloakroom. then we'll, then we'll be in session on december 31st as well. gregg: what does he mean, we're going to vote sunday night? >> here's what might happen. both parties meet with the president today at the white house. t

would be entire tirely optional. patti ann: yet another fiscal cliff concern. the price of milk, if congress doesn't take action before new year's day the price could more than double. dominic di-natale is live in los angeles right now to explain for us. hi, dominic. >> reporter: hi, patti ann. milk could reach eight bucks a gallon. currently $3.65. a bill that covers billions of dollars in agricultural subsidies. if they don't do that government will have to buy up massive quantities of milk because of outdated 1949 law. they could sell their milk directly to the government first, would be obliged to pay twice the market rate. that would create a milk shortage and spike the prices consumers pay. the senate passed a farm bill. agricultural committee passed a similar bill. they are not identical. differences aren't so wide just that the full house of representatives hasn't approved the bill and it has come down to the wire, patti ann. >> the farm bill is low hanging ornament on the congressional christmas tree, if they just embrace it, they can automatically come up with 10 of billions of dollars in budget savings. they can figure out where else they need to cut spending after that. >> reporter: that would quite a gi

you. sure. rick: just hours before the deal to avote the fiscal cliff, another financial crisis emerged right? treasury secretary tim geithner telling congress that the u.s. just reached its $16.4 trillion borrowing limit. he says the government is now employing, quote, extraordinary measures in order to avoid default, no word how lawmakers will resolve huge differences raising debt limit, the debt ceiling but it could be just a matter of weeks before the government defaults. heather: the supreme court's chief justice weighing in on the country's physical problems. saying the judicial branch gets a minuscule fraction of the nation's trillion dollar budget. it has already done its part when it comes to cost cutting. he is calling on the white house and congress to give enough funding to insure the federal judiciary can do its job. saying this. a significant and prolonged short fall in judicial funding would inevitably result in the delay or denial of justice for the people the courts serve. i therefore encourage the president and congress to be especially attentive to the needs of the judicial branch an

: congressional leaders are on the floor right now talking about the fiscal cliff. this after senate majority leader harry reid said, yesterday, a significant distance remains in negotiations on resolving this. notwithstanding then about 48 hours of intense talks about spending and social security. >> i was really gratified to hear the republicans taking their demand for social security benefit cuts off the table. the truth is they should have never been on the table to begin with. there is still significant difference between the two sides but negotiations continue. >> i'm concerned about the lack of urgency here. we all know we're running out of time. this is far too much at stake for political gamesmanship. we need to protect the american families and businesses from this looming tax hike. everyone agrees that that action is necessary. gregg: steve hayes, is the senior writer for "the weekly standard" and a fox news contributor. steve, great to see you. the deal being bandied about right now to raise taxes on higher earners actually doesn't appear to do anything to fix the problem, that is

will definitely go into a recession if we go over the fiscal cliff. it is really a shame we are in this discussion right now and at this point. what will happen most likely the house of representatives will come out and do an up or down vote at some point. saying that before we went on is a major deal. apparently they will want to go in and pick away at this, and not just take the senate bill and vote on it. we are still at this cliff at this moment. do i like this bill? of course not. it doesn't do anything. i like the fact it keeps unemployment insurance. i like the fact that we are not doing it at $250,000 and looking at $400,000 or higher, but it won't do anything for the economy. the economy is in rig rigormortis and nothing is stimulating it, and that's what we need. >> democrats will certainly blame republicans especially tomorrow when the markets open up. and if there is no deal or if the prospects of the deal seem bleak, the markets are not going to like that. >> no, they are not. markets like clarity. one way or another we need clarity. if we do go over the fiscal cliff, even if in the short time.
